Single Star: From digitized text to a portable, audio MP3 file, Digital Public Library of America, Music & Language Lessons for Kids?

Text to audio has been available on your computer since at least the mid-1990s, for listening to digitized text.

I'd like to go (legally) from digitized text to a mp3 file ...

or from a Digital Public Library of America (http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/newsroom/digital_public_library), for example.

Any suggestions for WUaS's FREE, Educational Software page, besides Browse Aloud & Read Aloud, which do some of this?

(Hopefully we'll be able to, with a Digital Public Library of America (http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/newsroom/digital_public_library), go from a digitized library text to a mp3 audio file, - like checking out a book :) ... and check out software, too, like you use a Word document, or language learning software, in the library :) ... like the Berkeley Tool Lending Library. online and from anywhere ... yes, yes, yes :)

Here's World University & School's free, Educational Software page - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Educational_Software - where you'll find Browse Aloud ...

And here's World University & School's Library Resources - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Library_Resources ... let's bring this together with the Digital Public Library of America, too.



Northampton MA: Looking for good guitar lessons for a 6 almost 7 year old and Language lessons for a 9 year old (preferences: Dutch, Italian, or French. In that order). Any tips/ideas?


Hi, Here are some ideas: Go out to performances :), and ask your friends for musician and language teacher recommendations, as well ... (And how far is Boston, to increase the possibilities, if you hear of someone who is dynamic, for example?) Find the milieus where making music, and speaking the language, are normal and 'in the air' ... (This is what I'll look for when kids come along:). Scott


Online, I know of free German conversation, and a lesson a week, from the Goethe Institute, in Second Life.


and here:

I don't know of any kids' Skype music lessons, for example.

What ideas do you have, who are reading this?
